I thought the last was Clyde... so maybe Eustace.

Originals were Blinky, Winky, Twinkie, and Clyde? Edit for Wikipedia: Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde.

Hmmm... any Game Meister I know, would know there is no 5th ghost!

The 5th ghost is Pac-Man himself, forced to haunt a virtual simulation of his life's story until the end of the universe.

I've got to work on them some more. The green background was supposed to be subtle, with the arrows bigger.

What's Dakar got on you reader? Don't let him bully you, it can't be that bad.

Dakar has helped the forums with his game-news thread. But he's afraid of ghosts, so I had to help him out.

Excellent work reader. Now promise to leave it as is.

Especially the code sequence.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Ah man, he changed it back. Reader had replaced the ghosts with green buttons labeled with arrows and letters that represented the Konami code. (Except he had the sequence wrong.)

Down,Down,UP,UP,Left,Right,Left,Right,B,A

reader had the correct sequence. But they look like crap, and I don't have time to fiddle with them yet.

And here I thought you were quiet over the weekend to be polite.

The colors are from the Apple rainbow logo, btw.

I'm quiet every night and weekend. I usually don't post when at home (with the rare exception to active game threads).

That, uh, that's gonna need some major work. I have the free time to play around with it later today.

Edit: I was playing around with other concepts – the d-pad seemed like an ideal choice, but it turns out when you reduce it to star sizes it just looks like you love crosses.

I was only looking at the left-right. I didn't think it was possible to switch up-up with down-down.

I plead failure of imagination.

The ghosts are hard to beat.

Something from GoldenEye, something from Halo, maybe a mini-Mario, something Minecraftish and a Tetris shape?

Like you said before, some stuff probably looks crap shrunk down.

* reader had the correct sequence going into photoshop. Not sure how the initial arrows got switched when I reassembled them.

The green background was a mistake. All it takes are the arrows, in pairs. Without the background, the arrows can be a bit bigger too.
